There is no fishing like remote Canada fishing. These came from Logan Lake, Max Lake and Trout Falls in Manitoba. We were canoeing from Norway House on Lake Winnipeg to York Factory on Hudson Bay. Alas the water was too high and our guide said we had a very slim chance of making it to Hudson bay without serious injuries. We flew out of Knee Lake. It was a great trip regardless.

Very nice! I'm jealous, what great scenery and fish!

Some Ling Cod from a recent trip, lots of teeth, some have a deep Turquoise meat, and a great shot of Tomales Point, I think, lot's of White Sharks populate the region. Those fish are small compared to the usual fare. Voracious eaters, will attack anything.

Indeed they are. I once caught one by accident. I had hooked a black & yellow rockfish and as I was reeling it in, a Ling grabbed a hold of it. That thing held on tight all the way to the surface, resulting in a 2-for-1 catch for me.

Blue color, nice teeth, made for a good skull mount. Note: The cheeks have been removed because they are a very tasty part of the fish that a lot of folks are unaware of.

Turns white when cooked. Makes great Ceviche. They are hard fighters.

I use a Penn 320 GTi on a medium-heavy Ugly Stick Tiger with 20lb Maxima. I was reeling a fish in, and in my beer induced buzz got it too close to the surface, it did a crash dive, peeled off 10 feet of line and snap, it was gone. Nice fish though.

Front Sight Bang's Sturgeon. Spring 2016 at the mouth of the Napa River, with Vallejo in the background, heading into San Pablo bay on Brown Sugar cured Salmon Roe balls.

Nice fish. Mine was a little bitch-ass fish at about 35lbs.

I can't catch a walleye on hook and line to save my life, but I do a bit of freediving, and meet them on their level.

Also, Mexican Yellowtail, and Gulf of Mexico Amberjack.

We've got some hard core fishermen here.

I've heard those sturgeon have a lot of fight in them.

Sorry I missed this but if you find yourself on the "correct" coast, come on in, I'll feed you well, we can drink and tell lies.

Mom catches her biggest fish

Took mom (78) and wife's mom (92) fishing. Mom caught her biggest fish ever, and the first one in over 30 years.
